Sustainable Construction Checklist
This checklist has been produced to help applicants demonstrate they are meeting the requirements of Core Policy 37: Design and Local Distinctiveness of the Vale of White Horse Local Plan 2031. It should be used to demonstrate that a development proposal is seeking to limit greenhouse gas emissions through location, landform, layout/building orientation, design, massing, landscape, and planting.. The checklist also asks for information that will be used to demonstrate compliance with Vale of White Horse Local Plan Core Policies 40: Sustainable Design and 43: Natural Resources.
The checklist should be completed for all applications to demonstrate compliance with these policy requirements. A separate householder checklist has been prepared to be completed for householder applications. This is set out in Part 2.
For ease, the checklist is an editable PDF and can be completed electronically.
